We started with this Bubble Bread, or Monkey Bread or Pull-apart Bread...it has lots of names. Anyway, ours was delicious and we needed the fortification...
Because we had a lot of unwrapping to do.
The packages went round the side...
And, round the back.
And, then we had lunch.
This holiday, I decided to do the traditions. The tablecloth and cloth napkins and good glasses. There weren't many of us, but we used the Christmas dishes. Ham and scalloped potatoes and green bean casserole, home made rolls, Copper penny carrots. And, Rob asked for an old fashioned congealed salad, lime jello style. Ahh, the 60's at their very best.
And, then I washed two mountains of dishes. That's in addition to the two mountains I did yesterday. Note the green linen shirt and the blue Chanukah apron. Oh, and the bulging belly, that's just how I was standing...do you wanna argue about that?
And, then we had desert. Okay, so maybe that bulge isn't just the way I was standing. Maybe it was part how tight I had the apron tied. See my table runner? That's from the little old lady.
After that, my best friend and one of her sons came by and we visited. Now, I'm going to have a sandwich and we're watching a movie and then it's "to all a good night..."
I hope everyone had as wonderful a day as we did. No matter what your traditions are, I hope they gave you peace. Lane
